Lt. Governor Calls on the Attorney General and Elections Board to Defend Voter ID Law

Thursday, January 2, 2020

Lt. Governor Forest releases the following statement:

"The people of North Carolina spoke clearly when we added voter ID to the state constitution: We've had enough chaos and doubt in our elections. Activist Democrat judges must stop this cycle of last-minute changes that erode faith in the democratic process.

We hope Attorney General Josh Stein and Governor Cooper's Election Board will uphold their oaths to the Constitution and laws of North Carolina and oppose this federal judge's ruling."

Lt. Governor Forest's Statement on AG Stein's Punt of Voter ID

Thursday, January 2, 2020

 Lt. Governor Forest releases the following statement:

"It should be clear now to all North Carolinians that even though the people of this state voted overwhelmingly for photo voter ID, the Democratic Party -- under the leadership of Governor Cooper, the tactics of Attorney General Stein, and the rulings of their activist liberal allies on the bench -- has no intention of honoring the will of the people. The only reason to oppose photo voter ID is if you intend to commit fraud at the ballot box.

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Lt. Governor Dan Forest released the following statement:

"This week, the General Assembly passed a bi-partisan bill that gives our state's small businesses greater ability to provide cost-effective, quality health insurance options to their workers. The Small Business Healthcare Act (S86) is a private-sector solution to getting more hard working North Carolinians health coverage without impacting our state's budget. I urge Governor Cooper to sign this legislation and stand up for this common sense approach to health insurance.”
